Little People, Big World Wedding Farm-The Roloffs

Anyone watching?

My son worked out in Portland Oregon last year and I made him go visit the farm during Pumpkin Season. He said the farm is in a suburb of Portland and surrounded by very rich houses. He saw Matt on his Razor driving around. He said the house is pretty far away from the barn and the pumkin activities, plus you could not see the house from the road.

Anyways, I was totally surprised that the family is filming again. The show has been on 3 weeks. It sounds like Matt was friends with the neighbor farm and when they were ready to sell, Matt bought the land/farm next door. Matt had big dreams again and must have ran out of money to get the land ready for weddings. It surprises me that every wedding they do, they have to do a big project to accommodate the bride and groom. This is why I think they allowed TLC to film again-to generate some revenue for their new project.

Matt and Amy were fighting once again in the first show, but things seem to be a tad better.

I figured they need money so they filmed this series.

Two words should never be in the same sentence - WEDDING and FARM!

Actually, maybe I'm a country gal, but I think it's a beautiful setting, and the two they've had there so far seem very nice (well, except for the portapots!).

It does seem, though, as if Matt and Amy are one step away from ripping each other's throats out on camera. I don't blame the older kids for wanting to go off to college and get away from their parents. If they fight like that on camera, can you imagine what they do off?

I LOVE their house (would love to see the design plan!) and can't believe that the dog is still alive, he must be ancient!

I wonder if Matt's assistance has a job yet?
She rolled her eyes at Amy in the first episode.
That would of been it for me.

Wow - really? I take it you think going AWAY to school is somehow abnormal?

The kids seem happy and well-rounded, ready to go off on their own lives - wherever they may lead.

I absolutely do NOT think that going away to school is abnormal!

However it has to be tough on those kids to see their parents bickering and fighting the way that they do (assuming it's not all put on for the cameras, which you never know with reality shows, I fully admit).

I adore the kids, the farm, and don't mind either of the parents separately, but think it's sad how unhappy it seems when they have to be/work together. I know that's what is edited for us to see, as viewers, so hopefully it's not really that bad...

I've been watching. Yes Yoopermom I can't believe about the dog either. I remember a few seasons ago he was near death (or so I thought).

I'm not very country, but I think they venue is beautiful. They seem to bicker and fuss at each other as their communication style. I couldn't stand to live like that, but it works for them. Glad to see them back! I'll take them over Honey Boo-Boo any ole day of the week ("and I did watch Honey Boo-Boo)

On yesterday's episode they seemed to show less bickering and actually some positive interaction between Matt and Amy. He with her charity event and then she almost complimented him at the end when they were reflecting on the wedding.

By the way, the purple gown she wore for the charity event was beautiful on her. I think that's her color.

I love their family. I don't like how Amy treats Matt, I feel so sad for him sometimes. At the beginning, I was wondering if he was living in his office building by himself? I also noticed that they're both not wearing any wedding rings. Love these weddings!
